I have a need for a large chain ring on s build but struggling to find a 96 bcd ring in say 48t. Does such a thing exist? I'm struggling to find one, narrow wide ideally. Anyone seen any?

This has specific fitting though.

There may be mechanical limitations on rigidity with 96bcd and large tooth count, hence 36t being the largest commonly available.

Cheers, I had read up on the reasoning behind 96bcd sizing and did wonder about that.

I know it doesn't help much but I've pretty much abandoned all these odd sized rings, many of my older bikes are 110bcd for mtb/hybrid and 130mm bcd for road. This gives me a pretty wide range of chainrings that are easy to get hold of.
